Anne Hathaway to Star in ‘One Day’ Adaptation

oneday.jpgThe novel One Day just hit U.S. bookshelves today in a Vintage Books trade paperback, but Random House Films and Focus Features are already preparing to shoot the adaptation on July 12.

David Nicholls‘ book topped bestseller charts in the U.K., and the film version will star Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess. It will be directed by Lone Scherfig–the director of the Academy Award-nominated film, An Education. Nicholls has written the screenplay and theatrical release is scheduled for 2011.

Focus CEO James Schamus had this comment: “Focus has enjoyed tremendous success over the years with great love stories such as this one. David’s tale is a romance for our times, and Lone’s senses of compassion and humor will have audiences laughing and crying with Emma and Dexter.”
